About the Captain

Herman Carter
Placida, Florida, United States
Member since March 2017
I was raised in a family of hunters and fishermen. I have fished in Miami and central Florida as a little kid and spent my teens hunting and fishing in Alaska. I love to fish the flats and offshore which covers bottom fishing, flats fishing, and pelagic. I just love to fish. I have a "never give up" attitude. I have fished tournaments for 28 years. I fish because it's in my blood.
